Expanding Your Horizons at Cornell
EYH 2013 took place on Saturday, April 20, 2013. Thanks to everyone who participated and helped out!
We are now looking for workshops for EYH 2014. Please see the workshops site for more information.
Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day conference for 7th-9th grade girls. The girls each participate in three workshops organized by Cornell students and faculty. The goals of the conference are to stimulate the participants' interest in math and science through these hands-on activities, to provide them with female scientist role models, and to foster awareness of opportunities in math and science-related careers.
Although the focus of the EYH conference is to provide hands-on learning experiences for girls, we also organize a special session for accompanying adults to give them information on educational and career opportunities involving science, math, and engineering.
Other highlights of EYH include a keynote speech by a prominent woman scientist and a display of science books, resources, and games that participants and their parents can access throughout the day.
